Animal feed

The generation of foam during the production of animal feed is caused by the presence of foam active substances in the process e.g. sugar/glucose syrup and/or starch and/or proteins and/or by-products. Struktol antifoams are effective during the production and processing of animal feed.

More over they are permitted as feed additives by the valid regulations and allowed to remain in feed. The dosage rate for antifoams depends on several parameters e.g. animal feed ingredients, temperature, pH-values, water hardness, factory setup and others. Therefore it is impossible to indicate an appr. dosage rate without having detailed information.

The most effective antifoam product, necessary dosage quantities and best possible addition points depend on a. m. factory conditions and must be found out for each individual factory by carrying out work trials.
